"ASNP has been a tremendous resource as my practice has grown into this gratifying area of Special Needs Planning. There are extensive intricacies to this type of planning and as such, what a reassurance to have this tool and a family of knowledgeable as well as supportive attorneys at my fingertips. This organization truly allows me to give my clients the best education and standard of expectations possible, which is what my practice was built on. I would classify this academy as not only valuable, but an essential extension of any special needs practice."

"My experience with ASNP has been terrific. The seminars are focused and relevant, the members are very willing to share their substantial knowledge, and the organization is responsive and well-attuned to the need for practice development support to be an important part of its mission."

"I joined ASNP because I want to be able to provide state of the art special needs planning services to clients in my practice area which includes estate planning, conservatorships and guardianships, and special needs planning and administration. I was looking for an organization that could provide the resources I would need on an ongoing basis to support me in fulfilling that goal...ASNP is a small, collegial organization with members and programs dedicated to this good quality practice in this specific area. While no organization can hand one the knowledge and skill needed to practice in this area, ASNP is a tremendous support and resource for an attorney committed to developing excellent skills.
I have used information disseminated at the 2d Annual ASPN conference in New Orleans both to develop handouts to assist trustees in administering special needs trusts and to develop my own informational special needs outreach presentations
Each special needs planning case involves a myriad of factors that make each case surprisingly unique. Typically there are several points in any one case where one has to solve a problem one has never encountered before. The ASNP listserve has been a viable tool in helping me work through such problems."
